Voluntary Contributor: May I take financial responsibility for my first suppliers?
Certain companies, that provide products or services whose containers, packaging and printed matter end up in the recycling bins of Québec consumers, are not subject to the Environment Quality Act. This is the case for a company that does not have a place of business in Québec.
A company that does not operate a place of business in Québec may take financial responsibility for the CP&PM it places on the Québec market. It then becomes a voluntary contributor. This way, the companies that are first suppliers in Québec will not be required to report the CP&PM.
